This world-class resort boasts a spectacular view of the warm waters of the Caribbean and enjoys a coastal environment that showcases nature’s splendors. The resort offers 104 waterfront villas for yachts (20 of which can accommodate mega-yachts) and 80 hillside villas that range along the western summit of the property. Nestled in a natural canyon that developed over centuries, the resort is protected from hurricanes, tropical storms, and other natural phenomena, extending that protection to the seagoing craft stationed there.
Just 22 miles from Santo Domingo, the island-nation’s capital, and with easy access by road, air (helicopter), and sea, the resort’s already unique appeal is heightened by the magnificent gastronomic, commercial, and after-hours offerings of the capital city. Tourists can take in one of the many spectacular entertainment events or see the sights. However, Santo Domingo is also the center of business and government: The principal offices of both the island’s financial institutions and the government can be found there.
Marina de Palenque Beach Resort, MAPABER, is a community for the owners of both sport-fishing and cruising yachts. The resort complex is built around an inland marina; its townhouse villas, rising three stories and more, run along the edge of the main canal. Each villa has a private dock that accommodates a yacht or, in some cases, a mega-yacht. Hillside villas are also available, as is a boutique hotel. Finally, the resort prides itself on its exclusive beach and first-class amenities.
